Did you know that ?

To enjoy this delicious recipe, one needn’t be in France only. This recipe can be found in all 4 corners of the globe. When in Portugal, you can enjoy the popular breakfast treat called “Pastel de nata”, or the “Dàn tà” when in China, or the “Custard Tart” when in the UK and finally the traditional “Flan” when in France!
 
This being said, the earliest trace of this recipe dates back to 13th century in a small city in the north of France called Amines. The dessert then went by the name “Dariole”.
 
The recipe varies depending on where it comes from, cooked in individual portions with a lot of sugar (for the Portuguese version) or with condensed milk (when it comes to the Chinese version) whereas it is enjoyed as a whole tart, to be shared with friends and family, both in France and in the UK.
